BESLAN, Russia (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Monday marks 10 years since the beginning of a Russian school hostage standoff that ended with nearly 200 children dead.

In 2004, armed Chechen rebels took about 1,200 students and adults hostage at a school in Beslan.

The incident lasted three days, culminating with explosions inside the school.

A gym roof collapsed, killing many of the hostages.

Russian commandos eventually stormed the school, and killed all but one militant.

When it was over, 334 people were dead, and more than 700 were injured.

The only surviving militant is serving life in prison.
